Sweet Potatoes
From Peaohland
W. W. Thompson, of Peaohland,
furnished fresh evidence this week
that sweet potatoes of good quality
can be grown in British Columbia,
says the Markets Bulletin
We must congratulate Mr. Thompson on the improvement he has made
in the selection of a market variety,
and would suggest that he discard all
other varieties and in trod ure only the
"Okanagan Queen" variety to his
pioneer friends in this new industry.
The tuber-- are of the long pointed
cream colored sort, almost similar io
the variety imported from the Southern States. They are firm And fresh
looking and present a better tab e appearance than potatoes ihat are imported thousands of miles, We are

Honey is a perishable article no
matter whether it is left in the com b
or extracted. With care it cen be
be kept in good condition for long
periods, especi illy in the extrrcted
form. Nectar, as gathered by the
bees, contains a high percentage of
water, which must be evaporated before tha hooey cnn bs extracted.
When the cells are Alied and the
right amount of evaporation has taken
place, the honey is sealed over and is
then considered to be "ripe" It is
not advisable to extract honey until
at least three fourths of tho cells ate
capped, especially in regions where
rhe honey is inclined to be rather
thin Comb hom'y should be left on
the hives until all cell's containing
honey are sealed, but should not be
left on any longer, as the sections ate
likely to become travel stained
Tho honey should be extracted as
soon as possible after tho supers art
removed from the hives, and if done
while still warm, moro honoy will be
taken from the combs. After the
heney is extracted it must be strained
to remove all foreign matter Straining may bo done through lino cheesecloth or by letting tho honey stand in
tanks for two cr throe days, when all
foreign matter will have rison to the
surface. If thc honey is well ripened,
it should be placed iu tho final con
turners at onco, beforo it starts to
granulate, but if it is too thin it
should bo left in tho taliks a short
time for further ripening. Honey
should be stored in a dry place, as it
readily absorbs moisture from a damp
atmosphere Honey ripening in tanks
should stand in a warm, dry room.
Ripened honey iu containers reudy for
market wil ko-ip b-tter iu a cold dry
place St'Lion honoy should bo stored
in a. well venti ated room where the
temperature is high and constant or
moisture will condeuso on the cap-
pings and be absorbed.—C. B. Good

ries this action is hard to understand.
We call attention this week to the
arrival of several other kinds of
fruit imported by motor truck and
cleared at small customs houses aping
the boundary line. We wonder why
Canadians officials should be called
upon to make importations so easy,
especially as at such clearing houses it
must be expensive to provide inspec
tors to see that the law is enforced in
regard to infected frdit.
Our informatiod is in effect that
American cities could be supplid with
more ease by the Washington growers. In view of the fact that the
home supply is sufficient for home
needs and that British Columbia is
exporting many of the impo-ited supplies, it    wonid    be   good business to

CANADIANS are fortunate in
their National Parks, in that
they have within their borders Alpine scenery which is not
equalled anywhere on the continent, and more and more they are
realizing that holidays in Canada
hold for the lover of out-of-doors
all the thrills that could be found
anywhere in the world. Jasper
National Park in the Canadian
Rockies, contains many high peaks,
eternally snowcapped, and on the
sides of the mountains are glaciers
which have stood the test of ages.
Millions of tons of ice, stretching in
some instances, almost as far as the
eye can see, lure tiie adventurous
climber to new attempts, while in
the calm, peaceful valleys wild

Additional bungalows for the accommodation of guests are to be
erected at Jasper Park Lodge, the

National Railways at Jasper National Park, in time for the opening of the 1924 season, it is announced by officials of the Hotel

Railways. During last season the
popularity of Jasper National Park
was so great that the capacity of
Jasper Park Lodge wns taxed, and
tbe additional *-> bungalows   being
provided this year will take care of
almost fifty per cent, more guests.
Four 4-room bungalows, each
room with bath, and two 12-room
bungalows, each room also having
private bath, are being erected. In
addition, a double-deck boathouse,
with the upper floor for conventions, and dancing, ls being constructed, and an octagonal curio
building is being built near the

The British government in paying off its
debt to the United States buys Victory bonds
wherever it can get them at less than par, for
the treasury accepts them from England at
their face value. The practice saves the British government a considerable sum and incidentally is a great help in keeping the price of
Liberty bonds nearly up to par.
Marconi, the inventor, says that he has per
fected a method by which he can send radio
messages as a beam, projected in any desired
direction. Moreover, the new form of transmission requires only a small part of the electrical energy needed to broadcast throughout
a circle the radius of which is the same length
as the beam.
Accounting for the weather is one of the
oldest of pastimes. In the United States the
storms that originate in the southwest and
sweep northeast toward the Great Lakes bring
warmer weather than those that origuate in
the northwest and sweep southeast. There is
some evidence that more storms are coming
from the southwest than was formerly the
case, though it would take a bold man to say
Investigation upsets many an old and widely held belief. Now comes a professor at the
University of California who says that he has
proved to his own satisfaction that a red flag
does not provoke a bull any more than a white
one, or a green, a pink or a purple one. Probably there are men who think the narrow

'Few appreciate," says Mr. Huntoon, "the importance of the recent gold discoveries in On-
,ario,the present output from that province.and
the exploration aid development work which
are ln progress in both Ontario and Quebec in

also pointed out that it was a remarkable fact
in regard to these recently discovered gold
fields that they ean be reached by Canadian
National trains within less than twenty four

Saint Fiacre is the patron of Parisian cab
bios. He was an Irishman of the seventh
century when, though Ireland was Christiau,
most of Europe was barbarian. He was
granted an estate in lireuil, France—as much
land as he might surround in one day with a
furrow. Legend says that he used a crozier to
cut the furrow. It was by a roundabout way
that the saint "gave his name to the French
cab." A famous hotel in Paris adopted the
the monk as its patron saint, and it was at the
sign of Saint Fiacre that the first of these
vehicles began plying for hire.
Peanut oil is one of the prime necessit'es
of the Chinese in South China and means as
much to them as olive oil to the Spaniard and
as lard to the American. It is the cooking
oil and foodstuff of the race. The United
States consul reports from Hongkong that
both imports and expoats of the oil are steadily increasing. During the first quarter of 1923
imports reached the high total of $738,796,
and exports $571,920. Large stocks of peanut
oil are always maintained in Hongkong: Most
of the local oil is crushed from nuts grown in
the colony, in South China and in North
China. Exports are shipped chiefly to near-by
markets in South China, the Straits Settlements, the United States, Indo China, Siam,
the Philippines and Canada.

What was the origin of the remarkable culture of the Maya and Incas, who were the
most advanced of all prehistoric Americans,
no one knows with certainty. That it originated on the Asi ttie side of the Pacific is possible. The aroaitecture of the Mayas is so
suggestive of tli j ruined architecture of Java
that one is itnpi' )ssed,with the feeling that the
two cultures may have had the same origin.
In that case th * Mayas may have been among
the latest custo ners from Asia, later than th e

A new plan for harnessing volcanoes comes

bring it to the rim of the volcano and pour it

For years there has been continued  discus
si<m   about  the   proper  name  of that  great
snow clad peak which dominates tho country
.jo the south of Puget Sound.    Sometimes it
was called Mt. Tacoma, a somewhat A nglicized
form  of an   Indian word that means "snowy
mountain,"and sometimes it was called  Mt.
Rainier after a British admiral who was perhaps  the first   white  man to see its splendid
miss lising from among tin- forests of its base.
For a lime islander seemed to have triumphed.
The board of geographic names preferred Ml.
Rainier, and   the   national park in which the
mountain stands was named the Mt.   Uainier
park    Hni.  the advocates of the Indian word
never abandoned the contest, and   tlieir argu
ments  have  pnrsuaded   the senate to pass a
resolution changing the name ofthe mountain

It is believed that by 192(1 Canada will 'displace the United States as second among the
gold producing countries ofthe world, according to Louis I). Hum ood, a New York mining engineer, and a former professor of mining

now third, Africa ranking (irst. However, in
the opinion of Huntoon, Canada's output is in

"Passing the buck" when you're out of
luck, started long ago; when Adam blamed
Eve for the apple she gave the time he
"stubbed his toe." Ever since then, in the
ranks of men, taking them high or low, the
coward at heart, who skirks his part, has tried
t& dodge the blow.
The man who aims high but fails to get by,
and blames the fellow below.need never aspire
to climb any higher—he's geared to travel "in
low." There's always a place for a man with
the grace to admit it when he is to blame; who
says, "It's on me but, by Jiminy, it never can
happen again!"
If you would succeed, there is no better
oreed, than that of the man who is Square:

Saving daylight is a big topic at this time of the
year. Everyone endeavors to make the most out of
the daylight hours. In these modern times, life each
day is fuller, a i.l each hour must mean far more than
it did yesterka*..
There is no better aid to daylight saving than thc
telephone. Nothing can help you more to make each
successive hour of greater value.
Whether you telephone one mile or one hundred
miles it is all the same to the telephone. The telephone
saves you hours. It lengthens your day, giving you

a separate office.
All applicants for the positions already referred to, which demand a
high standard in vision, color-sense
and hearing, are required to pass an
applicant examination and, if successful, must pass a further examination at least every two years
thereafter, and in some instances
more frequently, according to the
diminution of their vision or hearing.
They are also re-examined after any
accident in which they are either
directly or indirectly Involved and
which may have been caused by defective sight, hearing or color-sense.
In addition, following any serious
injury or illness or severe inflamma
tion of either the eyes or eyelids,
they are again re-examined and, not
content with this, the regulations of
the Canadian Pacific require them to
face the examiner whenever they are
slated for promotion.
Caution and regard for the public
safety could hardly go further than
this !
The tests employed are exhaustive
and are so arranged as to approximate as closely as possible to actual
conditions likely to be met with in
their Vork by those examined. Applicants for positions as engineers,
firemen, conductors, brakemen and
others similarly employed are re
quired to pass the near and far vision tests without glasses. If, at one
of the periodical re-examinations,
employees in these positions are
found to be in need of glasses, they
are allowed to wear them, provided
they bring the vision up to the required standard. Applicants for
other positions may wear glasses for
Hear or far vision, depending on their
work, jftl glasses must he approved by the company and every employee using them is obliged to carry
a second pair for emergencies.
The vision test, which is held indoors, Involves the reading of Snel-
lens test types, including letters of
varying sizes, at a distance of
twenty feet or less, and the reading
of an American Railway Association
standard reading card for testing
near vision.
Applicants and employees examined for hearing must have normal
hearing in each ear. They are
obliged to repeat correctly train orders given in a normal voice at a
distance of twenty feet. How important this is will readily be recognized by those who recollect the
difficulties of making out conversation through the noise of a locomotive with steam up or through the
clamour of wind or rain. A mistake
In a few all-important syllables under these conditions may easily be
made unless one has perfect hearing.
Most interesting of the examinations is that for color-sense. The
men are asked to identify colors
displayed by a Williams lantern and
to pass a Holmgren or Thompson
color-selection test. The latter test
is held in broad daylight. A large
number of skeins of wool of varying colors, called confusion colors
because they are specially selected
with a view to confusing the colorblind, are placed before the examinee. The examiner tells him to
pick out all the wools which have
red, green or some otlier color in
them or perhaps to match them for
shades. The man obeys and ln a
moment reveals his weaKhess, If he
has any.
In the Williams lantern test the
applicant is taken into a dark room.
At one end of this room, twenty feet
away, is the apparatus, consisting of
an electric lantern on the front of
which is a revolving disc oonlaining
a number of segments of glass, each
in a varying shade of red, green,
yellow, purple or blue, as well as
white, all colors employed by the
railways in their signals. The examiner switches on the light and
turns the disc, requiring the man to
name the colors displayed as the
segments pass before the lens. In
turn, small red, green, yellow, purple, blue or white circles of light, in
varying shades, singly or in combinations of t'wo or three, become
visible. "What are they?" asks the
examiner. "White—blue and red—
light green and dark green," says
the applicant, and so on, naming the
colors as he sees them.
These wool and lantern tests reveal to an astonishing extent the
prevalence of color-blindness. Fully
four per cent, of the applicants are
color-blind without knowing it and
will not believe it when the examiner gently but firmly points out the
fact. As it Is, of course, vital that
all men whose positions involve or
might involve the reading of signals
and all applicants for those positions
should have an accurate color-sense.
no color-blind person has the slightest chance of passing.
The number of men, applicants
and employees, examined on a system so enormous as the Canadian
Pacific is very great Approximately nine hundred appear before the
examiners every month on the Eastern lines alone, and between 13/100
and 16,000 employees on the Eastern
lines come up for re-examination
every two years. The figures for
Western lines are approximately the
It will readily 'be understood that
the entire system would be disorganized if these men, many travelling long distances/, had to report to
the offices of the Chief Examiners
for their tests. The Canadian Pacific therefore retains two special
cars, .one of the Western ami one on
the Eastern lines, which are specially fitted as travelling-test rooms
and are continually on the move. It
takes these cars two years to make
the round of the stations within their
jurisdiction, examining applicants
and the employees of thc company.
So, year in and year out, tho Canadian Paeiflc continues these exhaustive tests whieh have an tlieir object
tho maintenance of safely and efficiency.

balance of nearly $200,000,000. Exports during that period totalled
$1,069,715,880 and imports $873,-
367,762 in value. This represents
an increase in value over the exports of 1923 of $110,000,000 and
of $32,000,000 over the imports of
that year. The chief increases in
exports were noted in agriculture,
wood and paper.
The value of Ontario's mineral
production for the first quarter of
the present year, as shown by a
report of the Department of Mines,
has increased $2,333,000 over the

Will Be a Good Prairie
Market for B.C Fruit
There will he a good prairie mar
ket for British Columbia fruit this
year, according to J. A. Grant, Do
minion markets commissioner.
The yield of tree fruit in Ontario.
Michigan and Wisconsin is for below
normal, declar s Mr. Grant. Easterners will not be able to flood the
wheat provi ces witb early apples,
and this will leave tbe way open for
the later varieties of Hritish Colum
bia apples.
Mcintosh apples command a good
sale on the prairies and the crop is
good as last year, in the opinion of
the markets commissioner. Wealthies, which have formerly been a
drug upon the market, have only a
50 per cent crop tbis year.
"You may therefore expect to sell
as many apples on the prairies as
last year aud get a better price for
tbem,"says Mr. Grant,summarizing
the outlook.
Peaches will be scat ce in British
Columbia this year, while the apricot crop will only hef.iirly good. Except in the Kootenays cherries were
half the 1923 crop. Crabapples are
a partial failure. Plums will ie
scarce and prunes will be about uoi-
Pears and peaches will reacb a
